If only all things were that easy, I guess. Basically, I like red lipstick, and it's not that hard to win me over. Reading beauty blogs is dangerous for your wallet, but great for your personal happiness! (On a side note, I swatched Prince Noir and Oh Oh Oh, the only other ones that interested me. Prince Noir is far too mauvey-brown on me, and Oh Oh Oh is sheer and pinky-plum; reminds me of Syrup, actually, except Oh Oh Oh is sparkly. Neither excited me; Runaway Red is the only thing I came home with. Cheer!)
Here is Runaway Red; it's a blue-based satin finish lipstick, and it is gorgeous.

So. I've thrown in the towel and accepted the fact that I like red lipsticks and I will probably start to collect them. So much for buying lipsticks only if they were very different from what I already had. Everyone needs a hobby, right? Haha. Maybe I'll do a red round-up post sometime...to show that you can wear any red you want and make it work for you, no matter if you're cool or warm toned! I have orange-based reds and blue-based reds and sheer ones and matte ones...good times.
Try it if: You like blue-based reds with a glossy finish.
Skip it if: You already have too many reds, or you're not a fan of MAC's satin formula. I can't think of any other reason why you'd skip - unless you're a warm red kind of girl (though I usually feel that people can wear both. They end up looking quite different, but not bad - not by a long shot.)
$14.50 at MAC counters or stores - snatch it up while you can! Like I said, I bought the last one at my store, and I went the day after the collection launched!
